Fager, S.K., Sorenson, T., Jakobs, T., & Beukelman, D.R. (2018-July). Multi-input access to AAC: Eye-tracking + switch scanning for individual with severe brainstem stroke. Poster presented at the State of the Science Conference of the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (RERC on AAC), Arlington, Va.
- Many individuals with severe physical impairments continue to use single input access methods despite advances in access technologies.
- When using single input access, these individuals often face challenges including fatigue and inefficiency.
- This study investigated whether combining two access methods, specifically eye-tracking + switch scanning, would result in improved performance compared to eye-tracking alone.
